The Accelerate Programme
“Accelerate” is a six month programme designed to support and enhance the onboarding of those who are leaving the Armed Forces and
who are joining business and civilian organisations for the first time.
The programme consists of diagnostic surveys with feedback, two optional half day workshops and a number of individual coaching
sessions with highly experienced and accredited business coaches.
We are seeking to support Companies and Organisations who are recruiting former Officers or Senior Non Commissioned Officers
(SNCOs) and who aim to achieve immediate results and a fast track performance from new hires. Who is the programme for?
An individual who has served in any part of the Regular or Reserve Armed Forces and who has already joined or is about to join a
Commercial or a Non Profit Making organisation
Individuals who intend to develop a second career in business and expect to be able to achieve high performance levels and subsequent
rapid acceleration into senior management
Those individuals who need support after a false start in their first position after leaving the Armed Forces What is the programme about?
Objectives of the Accelerate Programme
To enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the onboarding of former members of the Armed Forces as they move from a Services
work culture into a commercial or civilian environment.
To coach and mentor these individuals by leveraging their previous experience in order to facilitate their achievement of a fast-track
and first-time integration into a new career outside of the Armed Forces.
A high priority will be given to providing a tailored programme with coaching support and short workshops for those leaving the
Armed Forces as a result of recent injuries and/or disablement.
